SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH 2 Social Determinants of Health Social determinants of health are the conditions under which a person is born and ages. The determinants are manifested by how a person lives, works and other ways of mobilizing resources. These determinants affect the general health of people in such a manner that they either expose persons to health hazards or buffer them from the hazards. Power and resources influence the social determinants of health at levels. The point implies that the people with access to resources are better placed to deal with health challenges. The people receive better healthcare and health education. On the other hand, people with no resources receive little or no health education. The main factor in social determinants is the ability to acquire resources and education to counter health problems. One of the common health problems are communicable diseases (Word Health Organization, n.d).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
